First, they're not going to be cheap. I used an adapter purchased from on a project about six years ago. It worked
fine but was expensive.

My current bench programmer, an Advin MVP, uses an add-on
PLCC adapter that plugs into a header built into the programmer base.
It is zero insertion force -- drop the chip in and close the lid.

What programmer are you using?
